Wo(man) loves company even if it is only that of a small burning candle. ~Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
I am pondering this winter morning the power of what happens when I light a simple candle at my table in the morning, pour tea from the English teapot my mother handed me in the driveway all those winters ago, and open my journal.
It’s morning and I perform these actions many mornings as a way of guiding myself into “Inner Retreating” before the world wakes up around me. This calming, quieting ceremony that is mine alone, allows me to walk through the day with my heart open wide.
How do you practice “The Inner Retreat?”
